SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
(Please read it carefully before using this product)
Before using this product, please read carefully the manual and its related manuals introduced thereinafter,
and pay full attention to the safety to handle the product correctly.
The instructions given in this manual are concerned with this product.
In this manual, the safety instructions are ranked as "DANGER" and "CAUTION".
DANGER
Indicates that incorrect handling may cause hazardous conditions,
resulting in death or severe injury.
CAUTION
Indicates that incorrect handling may cause hazardous conditions,
resulting in medium or slight personal injury or physical damage.
Note that the
CAUTION level may lead to serious consequences according to the circumstances.
Always follow instructions of both levels because they are important to personal safety.
[Test operation precautions]
DANGER
Please read this manual carefully and understand it thoroughly before executing system monitor,
special module monitor, and circuit monitor (bit device on/off, current value change of word device,
setting value of timer/counter and current value change, and current value change of buffer
memory) During test operation, DO NOT change the devices data that are used to execute
important system operations.
Mis-output or mis-operation may cause accidents.
A-1
Cautions for using this software
1. Required PC memory
The processing may be terminated by Windows on a personal computer of which main memory capacity
is less than 64M bytes. Make sure to secure the capacity of 64 M bytes or more.
2. Free capacity of hard disk (virtual memory)
At least 100M bytes of free capacity of virtual memory should be secured within hard disk to run this
software.
The processing may be terminated by Windows if 100M bytes or more of free space cannot be secured
within hard disk while running GT Designer.
Secure enough free capacity of virtual memory within hard disk space in order to run the software.
When enough free capacity cannot be secured, make sure to save projects frequently.
3. Error messages displayed while starting and editing
"Operation will be terminated because of insufficient memory. Would you like to stop?"
If the above message appears, close other running application software or reboot Windows in order to
secure at least 50M bytes of free hard disk space.
4. GT Designer2 and GOT display
(a) Cautions for displaying straight line other than full line (dotted line, for example) in Bold
When straight line other than full line is drawn in bold, the line may not be displayed with its actual line
width on a personal computer. However, it will be displayed correctly on GOT. This phenomenon does
not mean data problem.
(b) Display of end points of straight line/line freeform/polygon
As shown below, the end points of straight line/line freeform/polygon are displayed differently between
GT Designer2 and GOT.
On GT Designer 2
On GOT
(c) Start position for filling patterns
Some filling patterns may be differently displayed. For example, the start position may be different
between GT Desginer2 and GOT.
(d) Drawing of different type lines
The length of the dots varies in different dotted lines (for example: the chain lines).
(e) Display of object
The display position of the memory data display in graph function is different between GT Designer2
and GOT.
Even if the display-start-line of a comment has been set, the comment will be displayed from the first
line on GT Designer2.
A-2
(f)
Display magnification
When display magnification is changed, the connected lines or figures may be separated or the
filled-paint may be out of outline of the figure.
However, if they are displayed correctly on the preview screen, they will appear correctly on GOT as
well.
(Example): When filled-paint is out of the outline.
Display magnification: 200%
Display magnification: 100%
Position of Paint mark may be
shifted and the filled-paint may
be out of the figure outline.
5. Restrictions when the color setting is changed to the setting of less colors in the system environment (256
colors
2 colors)
• The color palette for setting color will be changed according to the updated settings.
• The color on the drawing screen will be kept the same as prior to the change.
If the color setting for a [red] rectangle-figure is changed to the 2 colors (B/W), the [red] color will remain.
• The colors of the image data (BMP format file) will be reduced when the project is stored, the screen is
closed and that image data is double-clicked.
6. Object function and device type
The object (bit lamp or word lamp),for which bit device setting and word device setting are separated,
cannot be converted between bit device and word device.
7. When device type is changed
Confirm the device type when the set bit device is changed from bit device into word device.
The device flag may be represented as "??", depending on the settings .
(Example) D0. b0
D0
D0.b5
??
8. OS setting
Set the font size as "Small Font" when setting OS (Windows ) screen.
The GT designer2 dialog box cannot be displayed correctly if the font size is set as "Large font".
9. When the toolbar icon appears in smaller size after startup of GT Desinger2
The toolbar icon may appear in smaller size right after GT Deseiger2 is started up.
To correctly display the icon, initialize it as instructed below.
(Click on [Project]
that tab.)
[References] from the menu, and select the toolbar tab. Click on Reset All button in
10. When using GT Designer2 in the PC in which the OS other than Japanese version
The text may not be displayed correctly depending on the OS versions; some version include the fonts
incompatible with GT Designer2 or GOT.
11. When using Microsoft Narrator
GT Designer2 cannot be used with Microsoft Narrator.
When using GT Designer2, do not use Microsoft Narrator.

Cautions
1 If the GOT type or PLC type set for the source project differs from that for the
destination project.
(1) If the GOT type set for the source project differs from that for the destination project, the GOT type
of the imported data is changed to the one set for the destination project.
With this import, some functions may be deleted due to the GOT type incompatibility.
(2) If the PLC type set for the source project differs from that for the destination project, the PLC type of
the imported data is changed to the one set for the destination project.
GT Desginer2 may delete some devices, as the device type is incompatible or they are out of the
applicable setting range.
Make the device settings as necessary.
9.6 Utilizing other project data
9.6.2 Cautions
9 - 36
Hold the incompatible devices
The incompatible devices, i.e., devices to be deleted after the data import (described
in (2) above), can be held by executing the following.
1
Change the PLC type set for the source project to the one for the destination
project.
2
Check for the objects converted to "??" in the device list. (The incompatible
devices are converted to "??".)
3
Make the settings of the devices for the objects converted to "??".
4
Save the modified source project. Then, open the destination project, and
execute the series of operations for [Import project], i.e., utilizing other project
data.
2 Incompatible data
(1) The GT Designer2 cannot import the data of functions, if the functions are unsupported by the GOT
type of the destination project.
(2) If the monitor data is imported using the GT Designer2 version that is older than the one used to
create the source project, some functions or settings may be deleted.
To import the relevant data, make sure to use the GT Designer2 version that is the same or newer
than the one used to create the source project.
For the compatibility between monitor data and GT Designer2 version, refer to the following.
Appendix 4 Applicable Monitor Data
(3) The GT Desginer2 cannot import the data of the following common settings.
Therefore, make the settings again in the destination project.
• [System Settings] and [Project Title] within [System Environment]
• [Script]
Make the settings again
Start two GT Designer2 windows. Open the source project on the one window, and
the destination project on the other window, and make the settings by comparing the
